Tuition Allowance Maximization

Federal Financial Aid

Tuition Benefit

A financial aid specialist will review your funding availability and usage to help budget your annual tuition allowance. Your UofM Global Advocate will help you make the best use of your funds and explore all cost-saving opportunities.

You may be eligible for Federal Financial Aid by completing the FAFSA application. You may be eligible for federal grants, which do not have to be paid back, and can supplement your tuition allowance.

Nike employees that meet the requirements are eligible to receive up to $5,250 annually in employer assistance for your education. As long as you remain in good academic standing and have a successful or better CFE rating, your eligible tuition expenses will be direct-billed to Nike.

Experiential Learning Credit (ELC)

We believe students achieve college-level learning through experiences outside of the classroom, including professional development training, earning licenses or certifications, completing military training and volunteering in the community. Our ELC Program allows you to demonstrate the academic merit of your experiences. All, while potentially earning college credit hours and shortening your path to graduation. Some degree programs allow up to 30 credit hours of ELC, and your Nike training may be eligible to be evaluated for course credit.
